superstar rihanna, why she did not feel safe even in her own home. coming up in "the skinny." >> the president wraps up his middle east trip later today. meeting with king abdulla of jordan. >> yesterday he took his case for peace to israel's young people. abc's alex marquardt is joining us from jerusalem. alex, good morning. the president is spending time with the israelis, but what did he accomplish on the west bank? >> reporter: good morning, diana. just after the president's meeting with mahmoud abbas, the palestinian authority, abbas said he had renewed confidence the united states will help remove obstacles to achieving peace. now those are kind words, there is really no doubt that president obama left palestinians feeling very frustrated. he didn't call for a freeze on israeli settlement building which is the main demand that palestinians have in order to go back to the negotiating table. he didn't as far as we saw in public offer any new steps to bringing palestinians closer to statehood.
2:00am
so while the israelis appear to be very happy with the president's visit, the palestinians are certainly feeling today like they got very little if anything out of this trip. >> alex, how much attention did that rocket attack from gaza draw yesterday in the israeli media? beyond that what's next for u.s. relations with israel? >> it got huge headlines yesterday, obviously, because the president was here. this is something that the israelis are pretty used to seeing. and for the israelis who are rather pessimistic about peace, it really underscored the point that they don't feel that peace is achievable. but by and large the review of the president's trip are glowing in the israeli press. this is a man who many israelis were suspicious of, not sure of his support for israel. in the next few days, you will see israelis saying they put their fears to rest with his actions and words over the past three days. >> alex, so much to get to on the president's visit. hard to imagine he will be able to get to all of the issues,
2:01am
what is left on the table as the president leaves israel? >> well there was no real banner accomplishment here, diplomatic accomplishment i should say. so the work really continues on the major issues that they discussed. a highly symbolic trip. i think the president's goal of highlighting the u.s.-israel relationship was accomplished and quite well. but the main issue they discussed, syria, iran, the peace process, work on those very much continues. so we expect to see secretary of state john kerry here more often than his predecessor in the coming weeks and months trying to jump-start peace talks. israel will continue to ask the u.s. to exert heavy pressure on iran to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. and as we watched syria descend further into the chaos in their two-year civil war, i can imagine israel and the u.s. will keep talking a lot about how to contain the fallout from that war. so there is still quite a bit left on the table. >> abc's alex marquardt live

from jerusalem. thank you. >> stay with abc news as we follow the president's every move in the mideast. live updates on "america this morning" and "good morning america" with the latest on this historic visit. new details about a suspect in the murder of colorado's prison chief killed in texas in a shootout there. he has been tentatively identified as evan spencer ebel, an ex-con that belonged to a white supremacist gang. police in texas say when they tried to pull over ebel's car he suddenly accelerated and put a gun out his window. >> he came by me, running 100 miles an hour had his left arm out the window. he was just shooting. >> colorado investigators immediately headed to texas working to determine whether ebel was linked to the slaying and shooting death of a pizza deliveryman. a bizarre story from philadelphia, a man arrested for impersonating a pilot. 61-year-old felipe gernard boarded a flight wednesday night

2:04am
you to every one of you who supported me today on this. >> the support is not the word. it doesn't do much. it doesn't do much. where is the killer? who is killer? who botched the case? never any physical evidence linking renta to the crime. jurors relied on eyewitness testimony and circumstantial evidence. >> wow. police in arlington, virginia, outside washington, d.c. are asking the public to help identify some daring robbery suspects. they released this surveillance video showing four subjects entering a jewelry boutique tuesday morning. one used a hammer to break into a glass display case. they got away with 23 rolex watches worth almost $610,000. their identities though remain a mystery. from washington state, drug searching police dogs are being trained to ignore marijuana. the change comes after voters legalize the possession of small amounts of pot last november. prosecutors say the drug dogs alert for marijuana is no longer enough evidence for a search warrant.

to both israelis and palestinians who are pleading for peace. after a ceremony filled visit to the mideast, will the president leave israel today with any major accomplishments? it's friday, march 22nd. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now" with john muller and diana perez. >> get one up top. >> happy friday. yes. >> we are happy about that. let's get to it. good morning, everybody. president turning his attention to the arab ally today. the latest in a live report from jerusalem. that is shortly. another major story that we are following, the police pursuit and high-stakes shootout that may have ended the manhunt for the gunman wanted in the killing of a colorado prison chief. there are startling new reports about the possible suspect out this morning. also ahead, he looked like an airline pilot and boarded an airplane flight. police say he was a fake. the big trouble this guy is facing.

the president's visit. hard to imagine he will be able to get to all of the issues, what is left on the table as the president leaves israel? >> well there was no real banner accomplishment here, diplomatic accomplishment i should say. so the work really continues on the major issues that they discussed. a highly symbolic trip. i think the president's goal of highlighting the u.s.-israel relationship was accomplished and quite well. but the main issue they discussed, syria, iran, the peace process, work on those very much continues. so we expect to see secretary of state john kerry here more often than his predecessor in the coming weeks and months trying to jump-start peace talks. israel will continue to ask the u.s. to exert heavy pressure on iran to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. and as we watched syria descend further into the chaos in their two-year civil war, i can imagine israel and the u.s. will keep talking a lot about how to contain the fallout from that war. so there is still quite a bit left on the table. >> abc's alex marquardt live from jerusalem.
